In what might be my favorite piece of tour novelties ever, Drake and Lil Wayne have released a Capcom-developed app based on Street Fighter called "DvsLW" to accompany their upcoming "Drake VS. Lil Wayne Tour." The app will apparently allow the crowd at the tour to "power up" the rappers during a rap battle portion of the concert by button mashing. They're also including trading cards featuring the rappers in the tours VIP packages.

American Football has reunited and will be playing two shows this fall: one on Sept. 28 in Urbana-Champaign, IL, at the Pygmalion Music Festival, and one on Oct. 11 at New York City's Webster Hall.

"Obviously, we knew the time was ripe for three middle aged dudes to play some old songs about teenage feelings, and stand around tuning guitars for a long time." - guitarist Steve Holmes

Chiodos have always had an affinity for the bizarre and what goes bump in the night (after all, the band is named for the trio of brothers who directed the cult film Killer Klowns from Outer Space), so it couldn't come as a surprise that the band's new video for "Why The Munsters Matter" is full of old black-and-white horror movie clips. The song is classic Chiodos - as it contains a Bone Palace Ballet feel while maintaining the band's rejuvenated energy and chaos (as seen on last summer's Warped Tour). Today, we are proud to premiere the band's new video along with the reveal of "The Devil Dance Tour 2014." The band's upcoming album, DEVIL, hits retailers on April 1st, but if you...

During the newest episode of Aisha Tyler's podcast Girl On Guy, Chris Rock spilled the beans about his upcoming 2014 tour. Mum was still fairly the word during the show, but we did get this little gem of a quote involving a potential guest:
The tour will happen. Maybe with Chappelle, maybe not. Who knows? We've been talking.

Paired with Chappelle's return on the Oddball Festival, and Dane Cook's recent tour announcement, it seems like 2013 is the year of the comedy comeback.
